    We were looking for a unique and cosy place to have brunch. Grateful for the divine intervention that took us to 101 Maude on 08/08/20. This restaurant went beyond our imagination. Great set up, warm beautiful ambience and super cosy! Two effective fireplaces and the most amazing staff (made us feel special and at home). The best service we experienced on our 4 -day 4 -golf-courses trip of the Garden Route. Extra special during this trying time of the COVID pandemic. 101 Meade Street will surely be our permanent stop whenever we drive from Cape Town to the Garden Route. Bravo to Gashwin who welcomed us and the whole amazing team!!! We loved the food and the special teas!!
    The chefs do not take 4 star foodstuff anymore. Straightforward Blunt Excellent in Excellency. Mushroom risotto the best What more do you want? Another restaurant that folds in half a year? No can do, this one will become the best in Africa for sure.
    Everything is delicious, including the vibe! Truly the best restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
    Ambience was great and warm. The service from Tamsyn was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious. Best I have had in a while.
    As one tours the world you come in contact with all the great and wonderious things in life. The great masters, Michelangelo, da Vinci, Monet and Turner. Their art is forever. What of an artist who produces a master piece everyday, many times over? The answer is the chefs and staff of 101 Meade. My wife and I and many many of our friends have dined in the wonder that is 101 Meade. We have enJoyed breafast , lunch, dinner,tea time and everything inbetween and have found no equal in The Greater George area, dare I say in Africa. This is the benchmark, they cover all the bases, Charm on arrival, friendly smiles to your table, soft amicable ambiance covers your table and never feels crowded. Food , that is why we are here, tasty and well presented with ample portion. This is the master piece created in the open kitchen, the dreams of foodies all over the world. Come one , come all and enJoy as every sence is treated and spoilt. Thank you to the Happy Chefs
    Still the best restaurant in George. No cookie cutter food here. Great menu with excellent service.
    Never a disappointment. Great food and service. Most definitely worth the visit!
    Great Place! Nice welcome and very good service from Bongie. The combined bar and dinner area workes very well. Food was excellent . Only thing that was not up to standard was the Irish Coffee, do not order that.
    Had breakfast, lunch and dinner on several occasions and have not been disappointed yet! Mavis’ mushroom risotto..... to die for. The lime cheesecake .. yummy! The lamb curry, kudu shank pasta, the list is endless! The food is good, the service excellent, the people friendly and the ambiance great.
    I live this place! Will alwgo back for more!! Best food, served by the best staff!
    A very friendly, welcoming experience from the moment you walk in the door. All staff, from Ben and Jeremy as owners, all managers and waiters and waitresses, is adding a professional, but family atmosphere. If you haven’t been there, spoilt yourself and visit them!
    Enjoyed the scones & coffee Very much ....lovely people & atmosphere...will definitely go back for something more substantial ?
    Ever since Ben and Jeremy opened the doors of 101 in George we have been regular customers and we are never disappointed. We have watched them slowly build up a restaurant where the quality of food and service is always excellent. I have a few dietary restrictions which makes eating out difficult and yet there has never been an issue about swopping out an item or ordering something that has been off the menu for a year! Well done guys!
    We have been to 101 a few times now, for breakfast, lunch and dinner (on separate occasions, of course) The food is of high quality and presented beautifully. My favorite at lunch has to be the amazing mushroom risotto! Well worth a visit, anytime of the day....
    Hands down the best in the Garden Route. Even early morning with a breakfast rush, the coffee to the breakfast scone was just phenomenal! Would recommend to any person driving by.
    My favourite place to eat as I know the food is always of a high quality. And the gin trolley is a highlight with supper. Definitely a place to eat at in George
    Without a doubt thee best restaurant with the most divine food. The portion sizes are great,the staff are extremely friendly, the food is out of this world. What I love about 101 Meade is that they change their menus often which means that your taste buds don’t ever get bored. Another important factor which I think that has a huge positive impact is the head chefs (owners) walk around. I would honestly highly recommend this to anybody who is looking for incredible food and a lovely evening out.
    What a stylish restaurant, subtle African decor, very eye-catching. Lovely ambiance. Gin trolley was excellent, friendly staff and knowledgeable about what was on the menu. Fantastic wine list. Excellent winter menu. Food was beautifully presented, scrumptious meal. Can recommend the cauliflower bhaji, loved the sticky roasted parsnip that was served with it. Main meal was the wood smoked beef brisket, tender beef brisket served with beans and spicy chorizo sausage, delicious!!. Best restaurant on the Garden Route
    Wonderful meal at 101 Mead - ambiance and service get a full 10/10 and a well stocked bar with a great local craft spirits selection. Love the gin trolley - my G&T was well garnished and presented. Unusual funky menu and food was tasty. Definitely will be back!
    Great service and very friendly staff. The restuarant has an amazing ambience and cozy vibe. It is definitely a place that I would recommend.
    Very welcoming and friendly host. Beautiful restaurant and great service.
    Always meet with a friendly smile and food never adisappointing. Best in Eden
    Friendly and professional staff, beautifully set modern atmosphere with interesting and unique artwork, delicious fusion food and cocktails bursting with flavor. The only thing is deciding what to eat- will definitely have to come back to experience more of what the menu has to offer.
    Great place to go with family and friends. Great food and wonderful service. Especially from the Manage.
    By far the best place to eat out. Once you eat at 101 Meade, you find it difficult to eat elsewhere.
    The best in town!
    Beautiful decor, friendly staff, my daughter loves their delicious milkshakes especially the toffee. We often stop there for a light lunch after school on our way home. Almost always we cannot finish the big portions served!!
    The food & service is always higher grade! Big ups to you guys for always delivering!
    I wandered in with two friends on a Friday night, and was immediately greeted by the friendly staff and incredible aroma.What an AMAZING experience - brilliant food, atmosphere, service and vibe at the bar before our meal! Friendly and helpful staff .The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the special Gin Trolley,they have an entire gin trolley that will be brought right to your table to view their selection and have your drink poured before you.Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care we will be back!!!-Kelly Rapid
    First pick for any meal of the day. Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere, staff really know how to serve and also their recommendations of wine choice or food choice is always on point. Would recommend if you want to enjoy a dinner with your family or have a lunch with mum. Best way to start your day with their amazing coffee and great choice of breakfast
    Impressive but comfortable decor, polite and friendly staff always willing to make your experience great, fantastic food, full of flavour, creativity well presented but very easy to simply enjoy. What a treat, a dining experience I would love to repeat.
    "We visit George on a weekly basis and we always make a point of it to stop for lunch regularly, their lunchtime menu has something for anybody and each dish bursts with flavour! The mushroom risotto is my all time favourite, I just cannot get enough. The waiters are always smiling no matter what time of the day and you can see they love what they are doing. Thumbs up to the owners and management for a job well done! "
    Just tick all the boxes!! We love to come here once a week for our date nights. Food is always perfect! Always tasty, and beautiful!!! Best restaurant in the Garden Route by far! Oh, and have you seen the interior design?
    We enjoy this place every time. They are the best in George.
    Surely the best place I have been. The plate of food you get, is not only a feast for your eyes but your tummy as well. Quality and quantity cannot be more on par. The ambience, right from when you step in, the welcoming, the warm service with a smile up until you walk back out (not that you want to) could not be any better. I usually love sitting on the kitchen side - it is like dinner and a show - you can just see (and taste) the love and passion that goes into their food! Big, big, big thumbs up to 101 Meade and their team! Your food makes my heart (and tummy) smile! Stay fresh guys!
    Best restaurant in George. Warm, cozy and comfy atmosphere during winter-time and food is to die for. Not average at all. The difference is very evident and stands out from the crowd. Excellent, friendly and most professional service!!! My almost favourite!!!
    From the warm welcome at the front door to the drinks trolley that guided us through aperitif's before selecting our wines is an experience like never before!! We opted for the Houtbay Octopus and Prawn Ravioli for starters and the Seafood Curry as mains and words cannot describe the flavour explosion we experienced. Well done to everyone that contributed to our special evening.
    Wow!! From the moment my family and i walked in until the moment we left was absolutely great! Food was excellent, staff friendly and efficient and the whole vibe was so lively!
    I have been visiting 101 Meade every single time I visit George! It is one of my favorite restaurants on this planet! The food is outstanding, service is amazing and the decor is something special! I will be back for more!
    I Recently had the pleasure of visiting George and its incredible gem that is 101 Meade , on my last trip from Cape Town . Everything was done to perfection, from the meal , which was absolutely INCREDIBLE! , to the decor (felt otherworldly and insanely beautiful) to the friendly an helpful staff and lastly all credit to HeadChefs Jeremy & Ben , who have created a space and atmosphere where top quality food is served at a reasonable price , in a friendly and relaxed environment in the heart of one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa . This place is worth a visit, I cant wait to do it all over again!
